Recommendation Letter for Coworker

A recommendation letter from a coworker is a type of letter in which the person who has previously worked with the employee enlists his experience, the person’s expertise and abilities, and all the good features about him. A recommendation letter is all praise and nothing less.

The letter should highlight and focus on positive things. Anything less than that won’t work at all. The person who is writing it should agree to write it all positively.

How to write a coworker recommendation letter?

  • The letter should start with the person to whom you are writing the letter. You might use general salutations such as “To whom it may concern”.
  • The next step involves taking a full overview of the type of job. Before writing the letter talk to your coworker about the type and description of the job.
  • Get a copy of his resume so that you can have an overview of his skills.
  • Highlight his achievements and experiences in the letter. Take into account the work he has done for the organization.
  • Make sure the data you enter is correct and validated. Try to avoid grammatical mistakes.
